A/A Marriage Records, Fulton & Forsyth Co., GA
Hi to all!
There are two books that will be useful to anyone researching the African-American marriages that occurred in both Fulton Co. and Forsyth Co., GA from 1866 to the early 1900's. I found them in the reference section of the genealogy department of the library.
The first book is "Fulton County, Georgia Marriage Records 1866-1902 ("Colored" Books A-G)" by Ted O. Brooke. I go to the library at least twice a week and am willing to look-up any needed info.
The second book is "Forsyth County, Georgia Marriage Records
Some of the surnames that have numerous entries in the Forsyth Co. book are ALLEN, BAILEY, BROWN, BURRESS, CLEMENT,DAVIS, HARRELL, NUCKOLLS (Nichols?), and STRICKLAND. I actually hand-wrote this information yesterday and have to go back to the library to finish the surnames from Strickland to the end! :-)
Also, there was a book there about the history of Forsyth Co., GA.
I photocopied this info and will be glad to do look-ups for anyone who is interested.
Blessings to all!
